florida governor jeb bush argues that the nation's immigration policy should be overhauled to reflect our current economic needs, but also should be b clear enough to enforce properly. this is a little under an hour. [applause] >> now, our love whered president finish beloved president ronald reagan passed away almost ten years ago. but as many in this audience know, it seems nearly impossible to follow political news without hearing some reference to our 40th president. his memory, his name and, fortunately, his legacy seem to be ubiquitous as our country grapples with the challenges of our time. for many years, probably starting with the day after president reagan left office in 1989, there's been a famous question often asked when this is a particularly vexing problem facing our country. you've likely heard it before. we, the questioners often ask, well, what would reagan do? it's a good question to ask, because while times and technology and many faces have changed since president reagan was in office, some important fundamentals, those that speak to who we are as americans, have not.

and special assistant to president george w. bush for his eight years in office. tell me first about this photograph right here, as the president and vice president. >> i'd like to call this photo timing is everything. it's a picture of the president and the vice president checking their watches at the same time but it's one of those lucky moments that i captured during the first early parts of the administration, and what i like about this picture is it's a great example of how timely president bush was. he usually started his meetings on time or early, usually early, and so this is really a unique fund moment. and those are the moments that are unscripted, moments that are surprises between all the formal meetings and all the protocol. those are the fund moment for me to capture as the white house photographer. >> how did you become the white house photographer? >> in my case, i was a news photographer. i was staff with "the associated press," and after the election in 2000 you might remember the recount where the election was and decided that evening. well, during the recount i de
narrative about the financial crisis led to the dodd-frank act". .. >> president bush's prediction was, of course, a very bad one, as we know, and needless to say similar and, no doubt, equally bad predictions have been made about the effects of the dodd-frank act which we'll be discussing today. such predictions highlight a predictable cycle in the wake of a financial crisis. there is an inevitable political reaction based on political, not necessarily economic or financial logic, and the political logic goes something like this. i as a politician must do something, what could i possibly do? well, i could always expand and reorganize regulatory bureaucracies even if viewed over time it doesn't work or, indeed, is perverse to do so. a famous be military theorist talked about the fog of war in a financial crisis we have the fog of the crisis followed by the fog of legislation. but it's even worse if the voluminous legislation not only reflects the fog, but is based on a wrong idea, a faulty understanding, or as peter persuasively argues, a flawed ideological narrative. peter wallison is
arrest about their opinion of the u.s. president under george w. bush it fell to a low of 12% approval. within a couple years obama with the day. approval was 92%. it's people who can make discriminating judgment on the basis of how they assess the new leader of the same country and many western europeans in many places were unhappy with an inarticulate proponent of unilateral u.s. action who have faced swaggering step and didn't seem as interested in their opinion. the president left office who seem to be good at articulating what it was in the u.s. interest to behave multilaterally come to seek cooperation with other countries and so forth and also embodied a set of a deal as people america at the united states is a land of opportunity where anything is possible. so there is a big deep and underlying said hatred. it's actually quite rare. we thank foreigners are able to make establishing judgments about different aspects of the night dave. >> host: why should we care what germans think of us? was the last time we were asked what we thought of angela merkel? >> guest: many are interes
on the street of london. even if barack obama or bush wanted to, obviously the secret service would not let them get out of the limo and interfere with a mugging or run to a building. it's a different kind of job. it has a symbolic power. in the end we're not surprised when you see a mayor out at the site of an accident or pulling somebody out of a burning buildings, ultimately the mayor sees himself, herself, first of all, as a neighborhood. someone who has to solve problems. this is reflected by the way in the statistics. we know that the trust in public authorities in american throughout the western world and much of the world has plummeted. congress has 12% in some poll, the presidency, not this president, the 30 and 0th. this president is considered wildly popular because he has 52% support right now. the supreme court numbers have gone down. mayors and city counsel are still in the '70s and '80s. some say it's the hallow effect. you are exempt from the general critique. neighbors retain trust in democracy that has been largely lost elsewhere, which means also our relationship to our town a
the seen steady to president bush at least implicitly saw his support for more troops. did you ever hear back from the president? >> guest: let's first talk about the study. i hadn't been on the ground i saw that on may 6 for something. probably one of the best in the country and i took it seriously when a friend showed it to me in the draft and i said it forward as you point out a summary for secretary rumsfeld i wasn't too surprised i didn't hear that i hadn't even been to iraq yet nor did i say we agreed we needed more troops i frankly didn't know. sing reaction with the president. i said there's a study. i'm a diplomat, not a military expert i don't know if it is right or wrong but it's worth looking at. president said we are getting more troops, colin powell at the time was trying to get more troops into the coalition that was his reaction and we didn't find that surprising since i didn't know myself at the time if we needed more troops. >> host: the next time you mentioned raising that issue is may 18th, 2004 as you are getting ready to go out to be a did you not raise it when you
. in these parts of the world this is down from the last year of george bush's administration. .. with friends or countries you don't necessarily before. i think benghazi is a moment that will be associated with the secretary. i think some questions remain unanswered england questions the cia and the pentagon and white house and the political debate house to some extent blurred the picture a little bit. i think that in the big picture with information that we have now i don't think it changes her legacy that much better will be used against her if she decides to run for president and she reenters the political light that jury briefly the big picture is that these things, these tragedies unfortunately happened when you're doing diplomacy in these places or a journalist in these places. america lost one of its great embassadors but under president ronald reagan's watch it is the first thing people associate with the name. she was free elective accept of course for the relatives of those who died in beirut to it's hard to say how it will affect her legacy that it continues to be associated with h
the first george bush was president, and we were saying, they're saying maybe he's not quite getting the arrival of yeltsin. i said why do we get richard nixon to write a piece for us. they said he will never utter the "washington post." and by gosh, he wrote of these. it was a pretty good one. i came in and i said we need to work up we called his office the next morning. i can't believe i spoke to. he was up all night working on it, and so we ran it. apparently, i was told it had some influence that brent scowcroft like the peace and gave it to president bush and it was a part of his policy. >> another question over here. >> thank you very much. my name is terry stevenson to either question about during the time of the watergate hearings and so the information came out as far as nixon burglarizing the office in so many other things i'd do if it makes you indeed impeachment or not, when we go into the future, patriot act, subsequent legislation, how much of what nixon got in trouble for now would be legal? >> well, not, burglary -- [laughter] >> i'll tell you what we know about presi

fragile, lightweight. they float off the bush and land on your neck and you you reach back to gently brush it off on the bus by the time you put your hand down to your side you have the rash. so my mom couldn't go down there with rashes to work. so i took it upon myself to say well let's take it to the top. who do i go see to manage the project and i went in and talk to someone about the real problem. what's the problem? caterpillars. right away when i mention caterpillars he told me to get out of his office. i told them i said look i live here and i have the right to talk to you about the caterpillars. they are denuded they had a panic button. the congressman should know but the panic button. the police showed up in the projects and the projects god came in and they rushed me out of the office and he said get him out of my office. i broke loose and something i was raised on a my household by my dad. he would give me 48 hours. i said you have 48 hours to solve the problem.
